What is massage?
Massage is a therapeutic procedure that involves the application of mechanical energy through manual techniques in the form of different types of pressure on soft tissues and muscles of the body, which leads to improved circulation and lymph flow, ie. to the normalization of these tissues. In addition, massage reduces muscle tension, improves tone, affects the nervous system in terms of stimulation or sedation, and improves tissue regeneration. Because of all this, we can say that this type of therapy has a positive effect on all systems of the human body, and that it leads to improved health and mood in general. In addition to treatment, some types of massage are applied alone or in combination with other methods for aesthetic purposes, most often when it is necessary to reduce fat deposits and / or cellulite.
